The Psychology of Taking #StarWars Too Seriously In Real Life On Social Media

star-wars_land_banner2

Fandom is many things. Being entrenched in it, and “Star Warsing” everyday can cause psychological problems as manifested online. We are not talking about having false dichotomies of “Han Shot” questions, we’re talking about when reality is enmeshed with a fictional world to create a delusion based on fantasy that hurts and bullies people on social media.

That is an a unhealthy fandom.

Health fandom is buying the books, watching the movies and TV shows, talking about the plots, reviewing the episodes on blogs and podcasts, cosplay, writing rational fan-fictions that had minimal self-insertions or wish-fulfillment, and roleplaying a character the way the character is manifested through reading research and actor’s and production interviews.

Here at the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 we have seen everything.

It’s fine to crackship, but keep it in perspective. It’s not going to be real. Don’t put your hopes over the top by bashing other fans. A crackship is a relationship between two characters that may be romantic/sexual in nature that would never have the opportunity to meet.

It is fine to speculate and write “metas”. But it should be grounded in the Star Wars literature — ALL THE STAR WARS LITERATURE that also includes Legends. Just because it is no longer canon does not mean that it is no longer valid to examine or interrogate, analytically. Metas are written points of view of how a story should be told and why.

It is not so much that we don’t like alternative points of view or alternate universes to Star Wars, it’s the authoritarian arrogance we hate that does not allow a fan to make choices themselves about what they choose to believe. Our opinions are based on the books, chapter and passage. If the book agrees, then we will go from there.

What we see in some Star Wars fans is they make up and pass off a flim flam to unsuspecting fans who don’t know what is true or what to do. When their false promises fail, these conned fans come to us. We have to re-educate them with facts: Star Wars Books.

We have also seen a heavy duty sexual component passed off to underage children in podcasts, which uses profanity and misogyny to describe characters. That is not Star Wars fandom. Bigotry, racism, sexism, Antisemitism, anti-Muslim, and rape culture is NOT TRAITS of Star Wars fans. Most of that podcast made too many false connotations in red herring logic as a causation to justify a hate logic. That is not fandom. That is spending too much time irrationally against people to justify hatred online and on social media.

The goal of Star Wars fans is to ENJOY Star Wars. Not HATE the content creators and do things to other fans to shame them and get their accounts suspended on social media. If that’s the kind of fandom desired, then Star Wars Actors Guild 77 and its band of pages and campaign is NOT desired.

What is going on is a diagnosis: Narcissistic psychosis.

The cure: Ghosting by blocking all access nodes

The treatment: Playing the gray rock to protect the hate onslaught a narcissist in a psychopathic episode on social media is suffering.

No response, just block.

The best way to think about is there are over 10s – 100 million on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. You do not need drama from a few accounts that block that fulfill. Sorry. That’s the way one needs to think about it.

Thrawn in Star Wars Rebels fan-fictions

Grand Admiral Thrawn is an Imperial Chiss Officer – an alien and the only one of his kind within the hierarchy of the Empire. He is ordered by Emperor Palpatine to retrieve a secret fleet built by his Master’s Master, Darth Tenebreous or Rugess Nome, a Bith Shipbuilder that used Sith enchanted materials for the starships. However before Thrawn became a Grand Admiral, he had to care for a small Mandalorian girl whom he was her patron until he lost contact with her from the Imperial Academy on Mandalore. The girl’s name was Sabine Wren and he taught her art and music theory. Their lives suddenly become interwoven into a galaxy replete with art and him tracking her every direction.

Speculative Predictions of #SabineWren in #StarWarsRebels

Sabine Wren in Star Wars Rebels Season 3 will have an exquisite role as she has a new toy in her arsenal against the Empire.

A jetpack. One she has wanted since last season, 2.

Her biggest challenge will be to her “Mandalorian-ness”. Long time fans of hers know she’s a unique type of Fem-Mando who fights for what she is right in the galaxy, and paints art to reflect her form of protest against the Empire. She also is considered “dar’manda” by most Mandalorians because she is a part of Death Watch, a former separated team from the rest of Mandalorians.

In the trailer, we see Fenn Rau tell her he is proud that she remembers his Mandalorian origins and that she has gained his respect.

It appears that Sabine is becoming more of a warrior in of herself. And she is becoming a leader.

But rumor has it that her reasons for obtaining the Darksaber (Pre Vizsla’s laser sword, then Darth Maul’s sword) is one of many reasons she left the Imperial Academy on Mandalore.

She has no family to speak of or what we know of her. It is our group, the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 to NOT believe that Bo-Katan is the mother of Sabine Wren because Sabine is “Desi” or Southeast Indian heritage and Bo-Katan is biracial or monoracial. It would be unfair to the bulk of diverse fans to whitewash Sabine Wren who is an awesome character and has a lot to offer girls of color.

We do think her mother worked with Bo-Katan as a Nite Owl and is with her during the last days of Mandalore. Her mother met another man and they had Sabine Wren together. Then her mother was killed in battle.

Here is our fan-fiction outlining that: Star Wars: Truth and Trudge – Vernissage

We also think that Sabine will be placed in a confounding situation where she will have to chose between that which is the Rebels and that which is her duty to the Empire.

All because of Grand Admiral Thrawn

We wrote a fan-fiction on Thrawn’s interaction with Sabine Wren after the Imperials took over Mandalore. He taught her art, color and music theory. Sabine was his protege. Unfortunately, he was reassigned to the Outer Rim because he was an Alien Imperial Officer. He told her to graduate from the Academy and look for him when she was to be assigned to his fleet.  That never happened. She left the Academy.

Star Wars: Vernissage – The Mandalorian Accords II

At some point she went underground and hid until she encountered Kanan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, Chopper, and Zeb Orrelios. She became Spectre 5 among the Ghost Crew and she was a weapons expert.

Sabine Wren will be one to watch this season with these two images when she learns Thrawn is searching for her:

What will she do?

#StarWarsRebels: The Force Has Facets Like Crystals

The Force has facets to it like the crystals of a lightsaber. Imperfect, blemished, clarity, cut, karat, etc. The two most familiar facets are the Light Side of the Force and the dark side. The Force is all the same one piece, that binds us and holds us together in the galaxy, according to the old Obi-Wan Kenobi Jedi Master adage.

In Star Wars Rebels season 3, those facets of a crystal will shatter and the shards will scatter like sand on a beach, since most crystals are smaller components to rock and sand.

The Star Wars Show on Youtube shows a clip of Star Wars Rebels season 3 at ~3:30 minutes. It shows what it is like before the crystal breaks through the Force.

Crystals used in the Force are responsive to the Force, and emotion of the user. The crystal and the Force user connect and share some type of bond, though imperfect. How does a rock bond to a human being? A sentient being? Life?

The basis of most life is the firmament or the soil that requires key components and nutrients to grow all other life. With a diurnal variation, oxygen and water, life will grow in a season. Seasons can vary from long to short, but the point them is to have a time to exist and then there is change. The only reliable thing about life that everyone can count on is that it changes, then it dies, which is a change.

During the time of Star Wars Rebels, they are finding what their eutectic point is as young people. Things must die so that new life can be born and evolution takes place. People can think that is not fair, and game the system and many characters do in Star Wars, but the Force is an act of nature and is fickle about its domination. It shifts like the eddies of a tiny brook to a tumultuous wave.

The key is, let the Force flow…

FYI: All this is being said because Ezra’s lightsaber (visit him on Facebook)  is green and where did he get the crystal? It looks like Kanan’s but it doesn’t seem like it is from him.
